Collingdale, PA – “Run, Forest Run. And indeed they did. On a balmy Saturday in September, six Marines from England and America ran from New York City to Collingdale inspired by the movie Forest Gump. The group started at the USS Intrepid in New York at 7:30 a.m. on Sept. 11 and arrived in Collingdale around 4:30 p.m. clocking almost 63 miles. The men ran, showing up at Collingdale Borough Hall with two recreation vehicles and a van housing their support team. Residents and firefighters were on hand to greet the unique group of runners.”
